on this. >>> now petraeus was appointed cia chief last november. before that, he was the commander of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan. we get more on his legacy and unexpected resignation from chris lawrence. >> reporter: he sent this letter to the rest of the cia on friday admitting to them that he had an affair and that he went to the white house on thursday and asked president obama to accept his resignation. on friday, during a phone call, the president did accept that resignation. effectively shaking up the national security team just days after the election. by the time david petraeus got his first taste of real combat, he was a 50-year-old major general. in 2003, he commanded the 101st airborne during the march on baghdad. it was in iraq that he asked a roert, tell me how this ends suggesting trouble the u.s. would have there in later years. they gained the nickname king david, used affectionately by supporters and by those who labelled him a celebrity general in 2007 president bush assigned petraeus to lead the troops in iraq and he wrote the petraeus doctrine. a scandal broug
it to us, but at this point no plans for us to sort of get a peek inside that room and listen in on that conversation. although we hope that there will be some kind of a readout to give us some indication as to what the two politicians discussed. >> you know, dan, oftentimes people say these meetings are just to make nice or to have a good photo op. in this particular case, not unlike other cases, there's talk about the potential of a position, maybe a high-level position, maybe cabinet level, in the obama administration for governor romney. and that's not so far off base. i mean, we have plenty of history to show that politicians have crossed over. just take a look at your screen. this is a great example of former presidents who have reached across the aisle to take high-level members of the opposite party into their very close cabinet. so we have any idea if we might see one more of these screens added today with governor romney? >> you know, no, not as far as we're hearing from those close to governor romney, and, of course, aides here at the white house saying absolutely n
. he told us supporters, voting for revenge, vote for revenge? let me tell what you i'd like to tell you. vote for love of country. >> voting is the best revenge. >> other republican campaign is making a last minute play for pennsylvania. this weekend both mitt romney and paul ryan are campaigning in that state. ryan is in harrisburg, pennsylvania, today and tomorrow. romney heading to bucks county. and cnn political editor paul stein houser is live from harrisburg right now. the polls show that romney is narrowing the gap with obama in that state. can he realistically hope to take the state this late in the game? >> reporter: no doubt about it. 90 minutes from me at the airport you'll have paul ryan, the republican running mate holding a rally. yeah, tomorrow mitt romney is going to be in suburban philadelphia. that's the swing part of the state, the part of the state that really determines who wins pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes. the obama campaign is not taking this sitting down. jill biden is coming to pennsylvania to campaign today. and one of the big guns on the obama side,

candidate paul ryan is speaking in minneapolis. >> the five of us, we're in congress together. president obama has not met with the republican leaders in the house or the senate since july. >> boo! >> we have a debt crisis coming, we have budget problems, we have economic problems. that's not leadership. we need a leader. now the reason mitt romney and i keep talking about our five-point plan is because we believe we owed you our fellow citizens an actual plan. we owe you solutions, we owe you ideas. real reforms can be had to get a real recovery. we had real recovery in this state in this country let's use that recovery and put people back to work. let's get the keystone pipeline, let's get more gas, more coal and renewables. i tell you what, we know what layoffs are, we have family and friends that we know of who are in their 40s or their 50s or their 60s, prime working years, they're out of a job or they're out of a good job. we need to clear the bureaucracy so they can get the skills they need. and if there are kids who are stuck in inner city schools, whether it's milwaukee or minne
scott for welcoming us here and lieutenant governor carol. thank you also to jeff atwater. as you know, jeff is the chief financial officer of the state. but he's been the co-chair of my effort here along with adam putnam who as you know is the commissioner of agriculture. appreciate their work. will weatherford, speaker of the house, has addressed here. i appreciate his support. senator mel martinez is here. appreciate mel being here. i think i've -- oh, i didn't mention congressman john. where's john? he's over here. hi there. it's quite a gathering today. this is -- it's quite a welcome that you provided me. your voices -- your voices are not just heard in this hangar, they're being heard all over the nation. and even though -- even though ann is in a different city this morning, they are being felt, your voices, in both of our hearts. and i want you to know how much we appreciate all that you've done, all the doors you've knocked on, all the phone calls you've made and how many of you voted early. i saw the hands that went up when i asked. that's very good. an some of you have put

more than i used to. >> thought so. >> but it is like anything, when a mechanic leaves the garage, i hope he stops thinking about the engine. when the mailman goes home, i hope he stops thinking about the mail. when we say good night, i mean see you later. >> president obama has very little time to savor the victory of his because he's scheduled to head back to washington in the next hour. jill dougherty is at the white house for us right now. jill, what is on tap for the president? once he returns right there? >> reporter: yeah, he comes back, what, in about three hours, three and a half hours. and, you know, brooke, he's still got that desk, still got the same desk, and it is filled with many of the same things that he had before he went away to chicago to watch the election. and that is, of course, i mean, you would have to say, number one, bring the country together, and that is just, you know, huge, whether that can happen is one giant question. and it is tied, you know, to the second issue, which is the fiscal cliff that we keep referring to. $7 trillion worth of potential tax
arrive. all he's folks. brian, first of all, tell us about the supplies, about the crews and the complaints here. it seems like this is a very difficult situation for folks. >> it is very difficult, suzanne. still very difficult. yesterday when we came here, this place was like a war zone. it looked like a shelled out just bombed out neighborhood. scenes like this behind me are all over the place, and make no mistake, it is still a very devastated scene. you do get a sense that all this morning that this neighborhood is coming back to life. people all over the streets. you have a family digging out there that's trying to dig out some of the remnants of the debris from their home. this church has had just to put everything out on the street that was in its basement. they used this stove, this refrigerator, the chairs here to feed people on sunday. that's all shot because the basement was flooded. but there is relief on the ground. city dump trucks over here to my right, your left, our journalist chris turner will show you one down there. thereby tl have been dump trucks, f
no home anymore. our joe johns is following us in washington on this story. but what he is following is that new jersey governor chris christy is now saying that people in the affected areas of new jersey, people affected by hurricane sandy can now vote electronically. they can vote by e-mail and they can vote by fax. it is an interesting turn. joe, what are you finding out about this? >> well, it's a very interesting turn, don. as you said, in response to the super storm, the governor has issued a directive. this is for misplaced voters that can submit ballot applications by e-mail or by fax to the county clerk. the clerk sends them a ballot and then they have to return that ballot by about 8:00 p.m. on tuesday. it sounds highly unusual. to some, it may sound off the wall. but the fact of the matter is, in an emergency situation, there is some precedent for it. the united states actually has a program for military and overseas voters to basically do very similar things. so chris christie is taking a page from that pramt aogram and trying to find out how new jersey voters are not dis
with the strongest military the world has ever known. it's time to use the savings from the wars in iraq and afghanistan to pay down our debt and rebuild america. putting hard hats back to work and make our schools state-of-the-art all across this country. hiring our veterans because if you fought for our freedom, you shouldn't have to fight for our job or a roof over your head or the services you've earned when you come home. that's what will keep us strong. that's my commitment to you, and that's what is at stake in this election. yes, change is a future where we reduce our deficits, but we do it in a balanced, responsible way. you know, i have signed $1 trillion worth of spending cuts, got rid of programs that aren't working. i intend to do more, but if we're serious about the deficit, we can't just consult our way to prosperity. by the way, we can afford it. i haven't talked to bruce, but i know you can afford it. i can afford it. mr. romney can afford it. as long as i'm president, i'm not going to kick some poor kids off a head start to give me a tax cut. i'm want going to turn medi
charles schumer who was on a tour of staten island, and even for those of us who live in the new york area, the death and the destruction unleashed by sandy and the pain and the fear of the recovery process are really difficult to completely comprehend. take for instance all of the people working behind me who are coming to work and seeing this as they pass by. no gas. people are lining up everywhere with cans and if they are not sitting in their cars for hours to wait to get a drop of gas from a pump that might have power, because many of the fuel pumps don't have power. so there are gas shortages. there are food shortages in a place like new york city where almost every corner, you can get something to eat or you can buy something in a convenient store, at least there's water on somes, but you can barely get a bagel in many places. sandbagging, all of these things are still part of the issue with the flood iing. it is still a problem. batteries, water, matches, candles -- all of these things that you may take for granted, many people in the area surrounding new york can't take a shower.
.s.a." ] throughout this campaign, using every argument he could think of, president obama has tried to convince you that these last four years have been a success. and so his plan for the next four years is to take all the ideas from his first time, the stimulus, borrowing, obamacare, all the rest and do them over again. he calls that plan forward. i call it forewarned. the same course we've been on will not lead to a better destination. the same path means $20 trillion in debt, it means crippling unemployment, depressed take-home values and devastated military. unless we change course, we could be looking at another recession. in his closing argument just this last week, president obama asked his supporters to vote for revenge. for revenge. instead i ask the american people to vote for love of country. [ crowd chanting "u.s.a." ] together we must lead america to a better place. we're only two days away from a fresh start, two days away from the first day of a new beginning. my conviction this better days are ahead is not based on promises and rhetoric, but on solid plans and proven results and an
's not answering your phone. congratulations from all of us. we're so happy and excited for you. you know, the family grows, it is just great. >> fred and john, congratulations. we're next. >> okay. take it away, don. >>> i'll keep you in the loop. any minute now, we could get a statement from the nation's highest court on whether the justices will conside cases concerning same sex marriage. this is a big deal. we're waiting for word. but first this, the fiscal cliff, the talks hit a huge road bump. zingers and verbal jabs are flying while actual talks are at a stand still. president obama says republicans must agree to preserve a middle class tax cut as first part of any deal. and he linked republicans to scrooge today while touring a pennsylvania toy factory. listen. >> if congress does nothing, every family in america will see their income taxes automatically go up on january 1st. every family, everybody here, you'll see your taxes go up on january 1st. i mean, i'm assuming that doesn't sound too good to you. that is sort of like the lump of coal you get for christmas. that's a scrooge
. so many people, so little power, and so many obstacles. things that used to be so simple. boarding a bus, for instance. hours after this scene in new york city last night, a shoving match borne of frustration and sheer fatigue. i can tell you more than half of the city's subway lines are now back in business post superstorm sandy. and don't strain your eyes on this map, but please try to note the dimmed outlines in lower manhattan on the left-hand side of your screen. those are the lines that are no-go, because of flooding or lack of power or both. and that's a big part of the city. still, a silver lining. bus and subway and commuter train rides are free today. free tomorrow. under new york's transportation emergency decree. travel by car, however, is pretty much a nightmare. and even if you can travel, take a look at these things. cars lined up for gas. filling stations need power too, and in new jersey where these scenes were shot, almost 2 million homes and businesses do not have power. so you're looking at a line that will lead eventually to a bp station in middletown, new jers
. israelis are using twitter and youtube to show the world. should the government really use social media to help get its message across? talk about a way with words. listen to former mississippi governor republican haley barbour, as he gives blunt and colorful advice to the gop. >> the ground game is really important, and we have to be -- i mean, we've got to give our political organizational activity, you know, a very serious proctology exam. i think that's the only -- >> oh, yeah. and they say twinkies can last forever. but the company that makes them may not last all that long. the baker strike that could turn off the ovens at hostess. "newsroom" starts now. >>> good morning. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining me. so far, 16 people in gaza and israel are dead as violence escalates in the middle east. this time it could lead to a new war in that region. over the past 24 hours, palestinian military groups say israel launched more than 75 strikes for warplanes and ships, including the strike your looking at right there, which was actually posted on youtube and twitter. thi
to columbus, let's go to white house correspondent brianna keilar who is live for us there. it looks like a pretty packed house this afternoon where the president will be speaking. and speaking of that ohio poll that we just showed, slight advantage? how is team obama feeling about those numbers? >> reporter: they're feeling good, brooke. this is a sliver of an advantage, i will tell you, but president obama is enjoying and has consistently for a while the sliver of an advantage here in ohio and in a number of key battleground states. ohio is really the most key battleground state. you look at the picture nationally, and he's not quite performing as well. our latest cnn orc poll of polls nationally has mitt romney tied with president obama, 49-49. but aides to president obama, david axelrod and david gibbs expressing confidence this morning saying that they think he will carry not only the electoral college, but also the popular vote, and, yeah, it is already very noisy here in the nationwide arena as you can tell, brooke. there is actually some areas you can't see, i know, on camera, in
correspondent brianna keilar joining us live from milwaukee, wisconsin. it will be a while before the president speaks there, but you got a crowd and lots of music, nonetheless. >> that's right. and this crowd is eagerly awaiting not only the president but katy perry who will be performing a small concert before president obama. here in wisconsin it's all about for the obama campaign getting people out to vote now on election day. early voting wrapped up in this state yesterday, but here, voters can also register as well as vote on the same day. back in 2008, more than 1 in 10 voters in the badger state did that. that's what the obama campaign is focusing on. when the president talks in the 4:00 p.m. eastern hour, he's going to be trying to counter as he did in ohio, mitt romney's message about being the candidate of real change. he's been saying to his supporters that mitt romney is not about change, and also he's been trying to urge them to be patient, saying that the economic recovery is on the right track. >> after four years as president, you know me. you may not agree with everything deci
. that's in cleveland, ohio. he told supporters a slogan used by the president four years ago better applies to him this time around. >> if you believe we can do better, if you believe america should be on a better course or if you're tired of being tired, then i ask you to vote for real change. paul ryan and i will bring real change to america from day one. when i'm elected, the economy and american jobs will still be stagnant, but i won't waste any time complaining about my predecessor. >> so that was cleveland, ohio. but mitt romney is now in pennsylvania. i told you they were busy. he wraps up the day with an appearance in newport news, virginia. very busy schedule. and that's president obama arriving a little while ago in south florida. he took issue with his opponent's promise of, quote, real change. listen. >> here's the thing, florida. we know what change looks like. what governor romney is offering ain't it. giving more power back to the biggest banks, that's not change. another $5 trillion tax cuts for the wealthy, that's not change. refusing to answer questions about the d
much up for grabs. joining us from bluemont, virginia. virginia jones, what is on the minds of people there in virginia other than that pumpkin smashing you have been seeing all day at great country farms? >> that's right, fredericka, we have been here watching people do this. they call it pumpkin chunking, it's a place to come to bring your jack-o-lantern when you're through with it. virginia went for barack obama back in 2008. the margin of victory was a little more than eight points, versus a little more than six points for the entire state. we have been talking to people here all day, not all of them have been louden county, a pretty good cross section. listen to what 2w0 of them had to say. >> i'll be supporting president obama, i believe he stands for women's rights, for children's rights for everyone's rights more than people who represent the top 1%. >> i was -- had high hopes for obama, but he just hasn't fulfilled them so i think it's time for a change and romney is that kind of manager, organizer that can do the job. >> reporter: and i'll tell you one thing i asked both of
